Fresh from its recent opening in the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), Australian café chain, The Coffee Club continues to expand its footprints in the UAE with four more outlets in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Ras Al Khaimah.

The Coffee Club through its MENA master franchisee, Liwa Minor – a joint venture between Al Nasser Holdings of UAE and Minor International of Thailand – operates a total of 29 outlets in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In addition, The Coffee Club will be opening more venues this year as part of its broader expansion strategy for the region.

The Grove Village, Ras Al Khaimah’s newest community mall, will be home to The Coffee Club’s second location in the bustling northern emirate. It also marks the 25th milestone outlet of The Coffee Club since launching its first outlet four years ago. Facing the Corniche in Al Qawasim area, the outlet boasts of stunning panoramic waterfront views and seats 100 people.

The popular all-day dining restaurant will also open its doors for visitors to Dubai Marina Mall, offering a wide selection of food from its all-day dining menu, delectable desserts and specialty coffee to complement their retail therapy.

Abu Dhabi residents and tourists, on the other hand, are in for a treat as The Coffee Club opens two outlets in the capital at My City Centre Masdar along with a new and better location at the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.

Commenting on the expansion, Ravi Chandran, CEO of Liwa Minor MENA, said, “The past four years has been a tremendous journey for the brand. We have invested in our expansion drive this year, a further testament to becoming the fast-growing café chain in the UAE. For the next few years, our vision for the brand is that we’ll be the preferred all-day dining destination of choice for everyone and we’ll be very accessible to our customers.”
